Kevin Jay Haggard lived his last days at home in Fall City, Washington surrounded by his wife Judy, mother Marlene, children Evan, Lana, Nicholas, Benjamin, Katherine & Lindsay, and pup Jax. He was a proud grandpa to 5 grandchildren. We said goodbye on April 4th, 2022.

Kevin always had a plan, and made even the most mundane parts of life fun and memorable. A brilliant baker, an avid reader, and a devout man of God. His long white beard and round belly, when embraced, let you know you were home and safe.

He could drive while sleeping, sleep while reading, and turn a stranger into a friend anywhere he went. He was the hardest working man we knew, and to know him was to laugh with him or share a beer with him. Known affectionately as “The Meat Pie Man”, he used his empire to support those around him.

We will celebrate all 62 years of his life together on May 26th, at 2:00 pm,  at Calvary Mt Si in North Bend. Join us to cheers in his honor afterwards at the Last Frontier in Fall City. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to NAMI WA (namiwa.org).

    I never had the good fortune of meeting Kevin but he did raise my best friend who is an incredible woman and I’ve heard so many stories of the role he had in making her the amazing person she is today. I wish I had been able to get a big bear hug from him, try one of his famous meat pies, and thank him for being a kind, loving, supportive, and encouraging father to someone I love so much. He will absolutely be very missed.

    Kevin was full of love and joy and he made everyone he met feel special. He was a great role model for his children with his work ethic and commitment to his business but priority was always family. We all were lucky to have known him. His spirit will definitely be missed.

    Kevin loved his children fiercely and is the very definition of the kind of dad everyone needs and deserves. He leaves an incredible legacy.

    Kevin made such an incredible impact in his childrens lives, I didn’t know him but got to learn about how great of a father he was through Lana.

    My husband and I once drove an hour to the Dickens fest just so we could try his meat pies. That was over 5 years ago and my husband still talks about those pies, and I still remember Kevin’s giant and welcoming smile.

    I knew Kevin as a child and used to babysit for him and his brothers. I am sorry to learn of his passing but I am happy to read about the lovely life he has lead as an adult. My condolences to his wife Judy, his family and his mother, Marlene. May Kevin rest in peace.

    Kevin was an incredible young man. Loved our days together at Loara High School, but mostly in the mountains climbing Mr. Rainer in 1983. The climbs of Mt. Whitney and visit to Manzanar were epic. His love for his brother was an inspiration to all of us. He may not have been the World Champion Meat pie Champion, but he was a WORLD CHAMPION man to all who knew him. We had so many fun times together and always laughing. He meant a lot to me!!!!
